We've had a lot of visitors from out of town lately, and to add to that, we've been busy celebrating birthdays. Since we have been feeding lots of extra people, I've had a lot of fun menu planning the past few weeks.
Menu planning for large groups of hungry party-goers is a lot different than the usual menu-planning I do (for two)! Its been fun to make and serve things that I normally don't make, and I want to share our dinner menus for the last few weeks. Part of the reason that its been fun is because we're kind of on a budget, so I didn't want to go crazy and serve everyone filet mignon, but I also didn't want to seem cheap! Ha!
So here you have it!
Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Fish Tacos with Cilantro Lime Crema and Crunchy Apple Salsa
AJ's Birthday! We ate out at Red Robin
Sausage, Cheddar, and Onion Quiche with Spinach Salad
Cowboy Skillet Casserole
3/12 Saturday (D's family came to town):
BBQ Chicken Thighs, Steak, Macaroni Salad, and Grilled Asparagus
3/13 Sunday (Party Day!):
Spaghetti and Meatballs with Homemade Sauce, Garlic Bread, Salad and Birthday Cake
Stuffed Pepper Casserole
Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Cole Slaw, Roasted Red Potatoes
3/17 Thursday (St. Patty's Day):
Corned Beef and Cabbage
Chili and Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread
As always, my preferred recipes are linked up, so try them out and enjoy!
I've never made corned beef and cabbage before, so it should be interesting. I'm hoping that it turns out, because I really love it and I'll be super disappointed if its yucky!
